Incidentally, wouldn't that be the first time a wife went from a state's lower to upper house, and her husband went from the federal lower to upper house?

it would seem so, but his wife has troubles if Steve Shannon decided to throw his name in against her. Regardless of Toms' money.

Shannon? She needs to be more worried about young Chap! deciding that he can not be out of politics.

Loved the headline.

The question is, how is it that Tom's Senate ambitions are news? Far as I could tell, it's one of the worst-kept secrets in Virginia GOP politics.

Chap's running in 07. You can bet on it.

James: Yeah...it wasn't much of a surprise.

The real question is this: Will the VRP accept him? Isn't he a RINO?

I think Davis' "Rino" status is more a function of his District then his own personal views.

It is a horrible secret that he has designs on moving up. The big concern though is that the 11th will most likely go Dem when he departs for the Upper House or leaves Congress all together. Someday, and I do not think it is to far off, we will have Congressman Connolley representing the 11th CD.

Scary thing is combine that with a new congressional seat in 2012 in NOVA and you will have four safe Dem seats and the 9th as a toss-up.

If Chap runs in 07 against JeanneMarie he is toast. And I don't mean the "toast of Fairfax".

Tc still predicts that Mrs.Davis would beat Shannon in an election
